Pop teamed up with another retired archery buddy and together they gathered supplies and ideas. The first few dozen were uuuuugly and didn’t work well. Regardless they kept going. They gave away the early bows and each bow went out the door with the instructions: “Don’t sell it, give it to the next kid so they can have something to shoot.”
Interest in the bows grew rapidly. This hobby began getting out of hand and became a passion. The bows improved in speed, performance, and looks.
Pop began producing adult bows soon after and by 2015 his oldest grandson was shooting his custom longbow in the 4-H National Shooting sports competition in Nebraska. 2016 the hobby became a business and was dubbed “Craig’s Archery” with my oldest son and I joining in to help build the bows. 2018 brought upgrades to the shop and new designs to the bows. 2019 brought new models and this website to help us reach out further and share our passion for archery with others.
Craig’s Archery is the result of years of hard work, dreams, prayer, and good old-fashioned luck. Our customers have always been regarded as our new friends and family. Pop is always open for a good conversation and someone to shoot with. Give us a call and let us be a part of your next traditional archery adventure
